Veronica Says…Magic Exists!!
I believe in magic and that dreams really do come true. I believe if you work hard and you work with integrity, your efforts will pay off. I believe in being graceful even in the most ungraceful situations (note that this is a work in progress, and not always easy). I believe in taking ownership of the choices you make—positive or negative—and looking graciously for the gift that lay in that experience. I believe in breathing in deeply and taking the first step forward, even when you are uncertain of what the next step will look like. I choose to live and love and be happy – fully, completely, every single day of my life and I believe that others want the same thing. I believe that we are all lights onto one another; charged with helping our fellow beings to find their inner shining. And that’s exactly what I have committed my life to doing: helping others to find their inner shining – the luminosity that is their birthright.
When everything fell apart…
Yoga found me when I was in the depths of my deepest despair. I hate to sound so dramatic about it but it’s true! I had come to a point in my life where I was financially, emotionally, and spiritually bankrupt. I’d gone through a terrible divorce after 15 years and my children were hurting. I found myself with the foundation of who I thought I was crumbled beneath my feet and I held the jackhammer in my hand.
It was a culmination of each choice I had made, both conscious and unconscious, that had led me to my current state. At that time, I lacked the skills to accept ownership for my role in the heartaches and failures, so I ran—as I had done so many times before—in order to not feel or see myself for who I really was. I thank God that I eventually had the insight to run into the hot room of a Bikram Yoga studio.
